Post*45 is a collective of scholars working on American literature and culture since 1945. The group was founded in 2006 and has met annually since to discuss new work in the field. We celebrated our fifth year of existence with a larger conference at the Rock Hall in Cleveland, April 29 & 30th, 2011. In November of 2013, the board voted to invite scholars in the field to propose Post45 conferences to be hosted at their own institutions. A Post*45 event will be hosted at the University of Iowa, organized by Dr. Loren Glass.
Post*45 is committed to the discussion of work-in-progress among a relatively small group of scholars. The format of the symposium ensures lively and substantive discussion of cutting-edge work in the field, and allows participants to exchange ideas and receive feedback while the work is still in development.
